The Naples Area Board of Realtors also reported that the inventory of homes for sale in November increased 5 percent to 2,319 from 2,217 in November 2014.

“Homes under $300,000 are going fast,” said Kathy Zorn, broker/owner, Florida Home Realty. “Days on market for that segment dropped 11 percent from 57 to 51 days, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for serious buyers to shop around.”

“There were only 34 foreclosures and eight short sales reported last month,” Coffey said.
